Jenna Harris is a girl who once dreamed of traditional happiness; husband, children etc. Everything she thought she would ever need to feel complete in life.
But three years after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Jenna is no longer the girl she once recognised. A break up leaves her self esteem in shreds and she fears she will never find herself again.
American rancher Cole Jackson is rugged, handsome and confident and inexplicably drawn to Jenna, who shies away from the intense attraction she feels towards him.
As Cole tries to break down the walls Jenna keeps so fiercely around her heart he comes closer to learning the secret which she is so ashamed of.
But can he break the chains of her past and help Jenna to discover that her identity as a woman does not depend on her fertility but rather on the heart that he has come to love?

4TLOR Review ~ Lou
What a lovely, sweet, sexy story from AM Kurylak. It was a really lovely story which had me turning the pages all the way through, and by the end I was left wanting more!
In this book we meet Jenna Harris. She is struggling through life at the moment, and although gets on with things day to day, her hopes and dreams of having a family have been dashed by a medical diagnosis which has the potential to affect her fertility. After her previous long-term boyfriend who she had hoped she had a future with left her, she’s holding out little hope for her dream. However, she is trying to move on with life and at least have some fun. Her best friend is a brilliant character who really helps and supports her.
We also meet Cole Jackson. He’s a real life American Cowboy – just like Jenna has read about in her romantic books! And SWOON – Cole is lovely! He’s such a gentleman, handsome and loves what he see’s in Jenna. But he is only here on holiday visiting family…
Jenna has a serious lack of self esteem – she is not confident in her body at all, yet Cole thinks she is beautiful. This story takes us on a ride with Jenna and Cole as they learn about each other. It’s hot, romantic and lovely. A few times Jenna irritated me and I wanted to give her a little shove in the right direction. But this book was very realistic and true to real life situations!
Read this book and discover Jenna and Cole for yourself. Can their love survive the secrets, the pasts and the walls which have been built around their hearts? And can it survive the distance?
Overall I found this story a little predictable, but lovely none the less. AM’s writing style was good, and I enjoyed the way the story flowed. Personally I would have liked a little more at the end, maybe with an epilogue a few months or even years down the line, but that doesn’t take anything away from this sensitively written, sexy and touching tale! A great debut novel from this author.
